All City Listings

You can choose to display listing of cities form specific countries. Navigate to WordPress Dashboard > WP Local Plus > Allcity List. Check the countries and cities in respective countries then click on update button.

Go to WordPress Add/Edit Page/Post and use only [allcity] shortcode.

And please make sure that you have enabled all categories or some selected categories from this sidebar backend. Because in [allcity] page /post front end if you click on some city/state/country it will redirect to a category page and then if you click a particular category it will display the business listing.

Then go through the front end it will display a listing of all city.

When you click on a particular category, it will be redirected to its business listing page. For example, if I click on 'Restaurants' it will display listing for 'Restaurants available in Alberta'.
